En fut au pub de L’Île Noire (Montreal) (10oz). Ça l’air de l’eau extrèmement couleuré jaune, très efferversant. Arome de pomme pétillant. Son est rafréchiant, moût de pomme délicieux.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2008 Bought this at a bottle shop in Montreal. Very pale yellow colored body with a few fast moving bubbles. Tart apple and floral aroma. There is also some other tart frui like cherry. The taste is tart and crisp apple. However, there is also a fake taste. Like aspartame. That throws off the package. Something is not right. It is light, but the off artificial taste detracts.

Draft... Crystal clear, colorless cider with a small, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. Smells like freshly sliced Red Delicious apple with touches of oak and vanilla. The flavor starts off fairly sweet and fruity, but quickly becomes tart and dries out. Medium-bodied and astringent with fizzy carbonation. I’m not a big cider guy, but this one wasn’t bad at all.

I believe this is the cider that I had on tap at the Wit’s End in Hemmingford, PQ. Clear pale barely yellow color. Apple, musty aroma. Tart, smooth, good apple flavor. i would guess low alcohol content, almost like drinking old apple juice. Pleasant, yet not memorable.

Well, I am rating this as the cider I had on tap at the Whit’s End in Hemmingford, PQ. The tap just said "Cidre Du Minot". Seeing that virtually all the taps there were McAuslan and that this is the most rated cider, I am pretty confident that this was the beverage. Obvious apple aroma with some fermented corn silage in the nose as well. A little barnyard funkiness. Very pale pale transparent yellow hue with a small bubbled white head that is quickly dissipating. Spritzy, appley start with mild sourness. Turns thin-bodied and very watery to finish. Pretty bland, boring, and uninspired.

The Lure:
Cheesy apples in a light but authentic cidery aroma. Color is an unattractive hay yellow doused in water.

The Festivities:
Tart apple peels drown in a soda-like sweet fizz. Quite watery moments, it does its job nonetheless, which is to quench and nothing more.

This one needs a can.

Pours a sparkling pale gold color. Pretty good aroma of baked apples. The flavor is less interesting than the aroma though, you can feel the apples and some dryness but not the baked apple quality of the aroma.
